ANGER 11-22-11

Your anger will not change what you are angry about but it will hurt you and those close to you. Don’t hurt yourself with anger when anger can be transformed with just a turn of thought.

Anger is like being stuck on the freeway. You can’t do anything about it, you can’t move forward, you can’t move back, and you can’t turn around. No matter where you have to be and what time you have to be there you are stuck. You can get as angry as you choose, wave your arms around, cuss up a blue streak. The result is the same; you are going to be stuck until you’re not.

Someone I love very much is in a situation she is very angry about. She is powerless to change the situation and her husband is also powerless to change it. Staying angry is going to create stress in her body which will takes its toll and it will also take its toll on her relationship with her husband. The situation is financially not good, but it will change for the better in time. I know that’s really easy for me to say, but I’m old enough to have a lot of these same experiences behind me to know that this will pass.

Change your mind about what you are angry about. Find a different way to see it for no other reason than to be kind to yourself and those close to you. Each of us has a core that is all compassion and love. It’s there under all the world has heaped upon it. Call on that core to help yourself.
